View of the sun does not end well, but the European Space Agency (ESA) gives us a picture donated from the north pole of the fiery star.
On Monday, the ESA shared the image in a blog post presenting an artificial Proba-2 view of the solar North Pole. The photo shows the creepy north pole of the sun as a pitch-black area, which is surrounded by a glowing golden circle.
According to the ESA, NASA / ESA-Ulysses' joint mission captured various degrees of sun latitude until its end in 2009. The study of the sun's poles has not been much. Due to the lack of photographed data, scientists need to compile images of the polar regions of the Sun, including the artificial Proba-2 image above.
The ESA further explained how the image uses short-latitude probat-2 satellite observations to reconstruct an artificial view of the star's poles. These poles can not be seen by us, but the spacecraft can collect data about the atmosphere around the sunlight. The scientists then turn off the sun's main plate and extract small amounts of data from the outer and upper regions of the Sun during rotation. Together, these bits of data can be combined to get a picture of what the solar masts in space might look like.
The picture is not just for the pleasure of watching. An artificial view of the Sun's North Pole could provide clues to coronary holes and ejections that affect space weather outside the Earth. By 2020, the ESA Solar Orbiter spacecraft will continue exploring the polar regions of the Sun and investigate how their magnetic field can affect the interstellar atmosphere.
